Volume Nine – Why Work For Us?


undefined

Volume Nine is committed to a workplace that empowers and engages its most valuable asset, Our People. We accomplish this through Workplace Culture, Work-Life Balance, Training & Development, Giving Back to the Community, and Benefits.

In working with our team, you’ll find that we aren’t your typical Internet marketers. Our halls aren’t crawling with stressed out professionals decked in suits, and you won’t find us ordering $20 cocktails at the local yuppie bars. Instead, you are more likely to find a group of energetic geeks who wear jeans to work, like snowboarding on weekends, and prefer the taste beer from a local brewery.

Visit our website to read more about our mission and values.

It’s your career. And we understand that you have an array of choices in virtually every aspect of your life. You can custom craft your experiences to suit your individual needs and interests.

We understand that attracting the highest caliber talent means offering an exciting job and peace of mind.

Volume Nine’s healthcare offerings include comprehensive and competitive plans through a national carrier with contributions towards employee health and dental premiums. A variety of medical plans options are available to help fit the needs of our professionals and their families, offering different coverage levels and costs based upon your preferences and how you choose to receive medical care.

For dental, we provide access to in-network and out-of-network providers, with coverage for preventive dental care as well as major dental work. And by way of supplemental coverage, we offer a voluntary vision plan that allows you to elect additional coverage to help pay for the cost of your vision care needs.

In addition, Volume Nine provides a $50,000 employee life policy at no cost to the employee.

A focus on work/life balance

Of course, we understand that physical health is not the only factor in supporting our people, which is why we offer programs focused on well-being. These include:

  • Unlimited Paid-Time-Off (PTO)
  • Flexible Schedules
  • Work at Home Opportunities

And these are just a few of our well-being programs in addition to offerings like group insurance, vision and long-term disability.

Are You Looking to Crank Up Your Career?

Then, look no further! We’re one of Colorado’s largest SEO firms & we are dedicated to hiring top talent.

    Pros

    1. The client comes first and their best interests is the focus.
    2. You can make your own mark at Volume Nine as long as you have the wear with all to back it up.
    3. Everyone at Volume Nine despite the occasional personal difference tries to make anyone involved, especially clients, feel like family.
    4. Our Founder, Chuck Aikens is the heart and soul of V9. He looks out for his own and always tries to connect and treat everyone as an equal.

    Cons

    1. Communication could be improved in some cases.
    2. Processes are customized and could be better defined, which can be both empowering yet disabling at times.
    3. Jealousy from those not currently working at Volume Nine. I have to apologize on a regular basis for unintentionally bragging about the benefits my company provides me.

    Advice to Management

    Continue what you are doing well, but multiple opinions about a single issue can delude what you are trying to fix.

    Digital Marketing Specialist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Volume Nine (Denver, CO) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I had a very positive interview process that lasted about 3.5 weeks.

    After submitting an application/cover letter via email/LinkedIn I heard back from the People Department within a week. I had been selected to move to the next step, which was a questionnaire. The questionnaire consisted of about 15 fun essay questions so that the team could get to know more about my personality, agency experience, & digital marketing skill set. I submitted the questionnaire and heard back within a week again, this time to set up a preliminary phone interview.

    The phone interview went great & the interviewer was very friendly. It consisted of more questions similar to those on the questionnaire, and then I was told more about the company culture and great work-life balance at V9. We scheduled an in-person interview at the office for the following week before ending the call.

    The in person interview was a great experience as well. The team took the time to bring 4 leaders/decision makers into the interview. All 4 were very friendly, answered all my questions, and asked more about my resume, experience, and personal interests.

    Following the in person meeting, I was asked for professional and personal references. 1 - 2 weeks later I received a call & formal offer. I was impressed with the communication and promptness during the entire process.
